“Arthrex is pleased to further increase its economic diversification investments in Southwest Florida of over $47 million in 2016 with the continued expansion of Arthrex Medical Education and two new Arthrex Manufacturing East facilities in Ave Maria,” said Reinhold Schmieding, Arthrex Founder and President. “Assisted by Governor Rick Scott’s dedicated leadership, Arthrex will continue to provide new high-wage, high-tech, non-seasonal career opportunities in Florida as the #3 ranked manufacturing and production company to work for in the United States.”
